E12 project - need wiring diagrams

Post by Marcus » Sat Feb 08, 2020 10:02 pm

Deal all,

I need the complete wiring diagrams for my 1980 E12 520/6.

It has been dissembled for 5 years, and now I have difficulty to put wiring back after finishing recent body work.

Your help would be much appreciated.

Marcus,

I'm not aware of an online source for complete E12 wiring diagrams. I would recommend that you search eBay for a Haynes, Chiltons, or OEM BMW service manual for this information.

Marcus,

I would always recommend the original BMW service manuals.

Marcus.

Absolutely! This service manual has fold-out electrical diagrams, including photos on where various components reside in the car.
